trump has been disrupted by protests. it comes after clashes between demonstrators and supporters on friday. thousands of people have taken part in anti-rubbish protests in beirut. the government promised to create landfill sites there. now, the town of killes has been nominated for the noble peace price. there are now more syrian refugees living there than local residents. the ruling party put in the bid that sez florence loi sent us it report. >> inside syria, glinting in the sun, just a few kilometers to the north, the turkish town that serves as an example of what can be done to help outside syria if the will is there. 90,000 to live here. they have been joined by 120,000
syrians. turkek has fluid to turn its back on. society up businesses to work together with their hosts. >> just outside the center, these women were making firewood with their children. they have been here for four years. not an easy life but said this woman, they have been welcomed. she said she had no intention of attempting the journey across turkey and into greece. that's likely to be because killis has opened front doors to syrians. so, it has been nominated for the noble peace price for all of this. they believe their efforts are so deserving, they invited the european there, germany's angela americaeel to visit. it's bece standard for european comments it's aors to write them off for lack of press freedoms, alleged you rights violations and the contrastn and the chaos of the mean union couldn't really be any greater. frankly, it's quite hard to
think of a single european town or city that could be nominated for the noble peaceprice prize the way killis has been. >> so what then do the authorities say to a europe of increasingly closed borders? >> today, it hosts more syrians than its own population. they shared their city, their street and their air with syrians. we believe that the example should be recognized by the eu and all countries in the united nations huge resentsments. european complaints about humanrights may turkey have a very odd ring to them here. lawrence lee, axis. >> italian police say an avalanche in the alps killed six skiers. they died. the victims were part of a group climbing the mountains 3,300
peak to ski down from there. the high altitude and rescue efforts were hampered. helicoptered had to 3 with little fuel or equipment to safely reach the site. brazilian president's main collision partner served notice it could break from the embattled ruling party within a month. there have been growing calls for the break-up of the ruling coalition as they face a de deepening battle against impeachment. al jazeera has more from sao paulo. >> the pndb, the largest political party, is calling for a change. its actually part of the ruling coalition under president del maruseff. they are saying they lost all confidence in the ability to lead and get the country out of the deep recession its in. this comes off of the back of numerous corruption allegations against allics of the russ revere russeff. the former president who was
loved and respected in brazil. he has been formally charge did by state prosecutors. members met on saturday and have decided to make greece be a little more independent from the ruling coalition, a little more independent from the worker's par party. they are not entirely breaking away from the ruling coalition just yet, though. they are giving themselves 30 days to make that final decision. now, the leader is currently the vice president so should president youssef be impeached, he will they will then become president. what they are waiting for is sunday. there are meant to be large anti-government demonstrations all across brazil. they want to see just how many people turn out for that. >> now, in venzuela, hundreds of oppositions have held a mass rally in carracus to out president nicholas maduro.
his opponents want to force him from. his popularity has fallen because of the prolonged economic crisis. shortage of basic goods and high food prices. venzuela is deeply divided between supporters of the madura's socialist government and hose would oppose it. in december, they won legislative e les for the first time in 17 years. since then, the supreme court which dominated by judges nominated by maduro's government has reduced the assembly's powers, curbing its efforts to change laws. that's why the opposition announced this week that it would take all constitna maduro. that includes calling a refer endsum, demanding a constitution and a mass protest. they insisted it should deal with the economic crisis route now and accused the opposition of putting political interests first. >> if they do that in the middle of an economic crisis, what can
we expect from these people? nothing. nothing good. we can expect the worst but what is most important is that we are here to work undisturbed with the great objective for an economic recovery. from there, they will not get rid of me, nor should they get rid of anyone. the economic recovery, we have to see the emergency as opportunity. >> i am joined by francisco domingas, the head of the center for brazilian latin american studies from middlesex. the opposition were out in protest on saturday. how much support do they have among the venzuelas in their campaign to oust the president? >> we don't really know request p they won the election by a majority. but when it comes, they want the village. the contest, for the economic it
was never during the leak toral campaign to ask the government. it isn't clear whether there will be able to organize the population on the same level for the national assembly. the reason we say that, today, the demonstration, the government demonstration is significantly smaller. is we have to wait and see if they are able to win a majority in the overall referendum. which they say they are going to go. >> why does it prove difficult for them to mobilized people when there is a great deal of disconte discontent, the economy is in crisis and people are also very angry about corruption? >> in the last presidential election, elected, the opposition won 7.4 million votes, around 4 years the government has been facing.
the decision won 7 million. maduro won the election with 7.6 million. spraefshling, he recalls. thinking to have the same number of votes or higher and they know this is going to be difficult given that ask it was not a mandate. >> they are trying different strategies. one is the protest that has failed to get a lot of support. they have control of the asem i assembly for the first time in 17 years. at the same time, president maduro has been trying to reduce the powers of that assembly. >> they are not being reduced. >> he is trying to through the
supreme court. >> it's been very clear up to now. just about any legislation sometimes fall outside the competition. they can actually get they can do things, provide it, and 2, that they may be. >> could it be protests possibly turn violent at some point? we have seen that they have been largely peaceful but two years ago, they did manage to get a lot of people out on e streets. could we see the same sort of this inc. again? >> office if if happens, it could be damaging to the opposition. by february, july, the number of
people who are bothna, you know, in the regional 88% and the 90% and they were these people who were organizing the secretary of the coalition position told them, we don't want anybody throwing stones. we don't want anybody using violence. nice to get your analysis. >> my pleasure. >> now, one of the world's top human players of the complex board game "go" has been defeated 3-nil by a computer program. the alva go computer has an unasalable lead.
>> if i can live there? >> okay. okay. >> wow. >> the amazement of the comment ators was obvious. the sdmreech of the human champion equally clear. mr. lien is considered one of the game's greatest modern players. he went in to this 5-game series supremely confident. he didn't win a single match. even alpha go's creators were amazed by results. >> to be honest, we are a bit stunned and speechless. an incredible fight again. alpha go made a large territory at the bottom of the board. mr. lee found some really amazing tactics to play in the territory and create a huge fight. >> go is an ancients chinese game for two players who take turns placing black and white stones on a 19 by 19 grid. players win by surrounding their
opponents' pieces. it sounds simple. a go player typically has a choice of 200 moves compared with around 20 moves in ches and intuition is as imports as memory which makes it the mount he haverest. it uses two sets of deep neural networks that allow it to punch data in a more human like fashion. it learns and improves from every game it plays. last october, alva go beat the european champion 5-nil. this latest victory sets a new benchmark. defeated champion tried to put a brave face on it with a reassuring word for the rest of the human race. >> alpha go exhibited some weaknesses so i doubt whether the skills can actually deliver a wider message to humans. >> with the final two games of the series still to be played,
alpha go is only going get better and cleverer. paul brennan, argues. >> joining me now viea scalp from glass go in scotland is the computer scientist, snoel shockey. how is it that a computer program is top ranked, some would sait, beating a ledge ends area go player? >> this is stunning. i am sitting here smiling because it's such a fantastic win. everything thought this was at least decades away. it's this kind of learning machine, unquestionably the best neural network learning team in the world. so there is another milestone. it's not just a milestone. we have had critics ever since the beginning of ai, people have said wouldn't be able to play nuts and crosses and couldn't play drafts. everybody said it will never be able to beat a grand master at ches. eventually we beat the world
champion at ches. this is the holy grail of games, the hardest, most complex game in the world. there is no where else to go from here. >> so in some ways, this is kind of a peek in the development of artificial intelligence. how would you describe alpha go's actual performance what sort of approach did the computer program take for the game? and how much of a struggle was it for the human opponent? >> the approaches for being able to do the game was machines have got really, really fast over the last -- since the ches playing game. so high-speed machines with a lot of memory. they took 13 billion expert positions that have been recorded. 13 million. and they trained the computer on those 13 million expert positions and then what they did was they generated lots of random games and got the
computer to play itself using something called reinforcement learning so there are computers learning all the time every time it wins a game, it gives itself points and goes on like that. how it did it is a mystery a normal a.m. game, you work out the rules. you worked out the rules. it's transparent how it did it. this has lootsdz of notes in there, link, mathematical wins. those are changing all the time as it is learning. >> how did that compare to the human mind? i know that there isn't just, you know, that's not a singular thing because everybody is different but how important is that, that this computer program is not just learning and playing within the rules of the game. it's actually applying ingenuity
and learning from mistakes. let me put some cold water on that. as i said, i am blown away by the great achievement but relating it to the human mind is another thing. this is a closed system. this game has a sense of rules. in the real world, there aren't clear rules like that, clear systems. this doesn't mean art official intelligence has gotten smarter than humans at all. this game didn't care if it won, lost, or if the opponent had shown up and couldn't make you a cup of tea at the ends of the game. it's good at .1 single thing: it's a very singular machine doing a very singular job in an incredibly good way. >> what does it mean for us? >> on a practical level, i would
be concerned. artificial infell sequence is taking over so many jobs. wall street, 50 jobs have been lost in the last couple of years. there were 150,000 tradeers. now, there are just 100. that's what i mean by al gorithims are getting very good at these very specific things like trading. machines are getting good a lot doing things like making food very quickly and sebbing it so also biggest problem will be job losses. people say things like often will say things like, this is great. humans will be able to lie around and do nothing. who is going to pay them to do that? ty points in time, maybe 10, 15 years time it will come where we are going to have to think hard about what sorts of controls we are going to cede to these machines and a redistribution of wealth. >> interesting. life might be getting easier as a result but perhaps even fewer
job going to be around. >> yes >> thank you so much, noel sharkey i hope we get to talk to you again joining us from glass gow. >> water levels in the nile have fallen to unusual low levels. he job description immediate were reports some small islands have come to the surface in parts of cairo. the irrigation ministry says the drop was expected and is due to the seasonal irrigation schedule. a similar situation in mexico where a 16th search has reserviced because of a severe drought there. it was flooded along with the town in 1962. did has and three times when water levels drop. no rain so far this year. more to come for you shortly. england looked to avenge last year's world cup defeat against wales as the two teams face each
